Thank you—and see you for the 2020 World Paddling Film Festival!
Thanks to everyone who joined for the first-ever-in-Japan Paddling Film Festival. Not a huge crowd, but some great paddlers and some really positive feedback. The films were really interesting, even for non-paddlers. In fact, the most popular film, Junk Paddle, was more about the importance of wood in our lives, and people's interaction with nature.

Hope to see you early next summer for the 2020 Festival! Keep watching here for more news (and you can always contact us at info@dancingsnow.com if you have questions or comments. Be sure to check our Facebook page too.

See us if you need a new wire!
The BOA closure system found on snowboard boots, our Tubbs snowshoes, boots, golf shoes, running shoes and a whole lot more is a tough, clever way to get tightly into your footwear. Boa

The wires can break (apparently the twist unit can get bashed to death by some of you mad tree bouncers)—although it doesn't happen that often. If it does, just come by Dancing Snow. We've been trained, we have the parts (which are free), and we can get you back in pristine form and ready to head back out on the hill. The labor will be affordable, too—just buy a beer and relax while we rethread the wires! (or a coffee, or a new BCA avalanche transceiver. We aren't fussy). Let us know if we can help!

    K2 Pon2oonWe can get you set up with all the skis from K2 and Line, put on the bindings of your choice, get them waxed and ready and hold them here for you until you come to visit! We can also ship around Japan as well.

    And, if you like, we can also store your skis right here in Myoko for you over the summer. We’ll put on a thick summer wax to protect the edges and bases, store them, then have them ready for the coming season. Just contact us at info@dancingsnow.com if you'd like more information, or want to place an order.

    We also carry the full line of BCA snow safety equipment, K2 and BCA poles, helmets, skins, Tubbs snowshoes, and some fun Myoko-original clothing and goods in our center.

    Dancing Snow is a BCA Snow Safety Center
      BCA logo Dancing Snow provides sales and rental of beacons, airbags and air cylinders from BCA, the premier manufacturer of snow safety goods. Float 32 airbag

    The air cylinders for Japan are different from those for Europe and North America, meaning they can't be filled in the country—so just rent a cylinder, or a complete Float airbag system, for your stay in Myoko. Let us know well ahead on the airbags, though, so we can be sure and have one ready for you.


    Snow Reports
    The latest from our snow study plot and findings on the hill. Things were getting long here, so find reports both new and old on our Facebook page. We're always looking to hear from you about what you find out on the hill! The more information we have and can share here, the better, more accurate and more informative it will be!

    Shopping at Dancing Snow

    Dancing Snow’s new center gives us the space for retail sales as well as rentals—and even room for a little post-tour party. We will be adding more items as time goes on, but come visit our physical shop, check out our online store, or just drop us a line. We're currently handling:


    Skis and snowboards
    We can provide all products from the K2 family of companies. Because we are a small space, we don’t have all items in house, but can order directly and have them at the shop in just a few days. We would also be happy to take your order in the off-season, get your bindings mounted and even provide a hot wax, so your skis or board will be ready for you when you arrive in Myoko (we can even store skis and boards over the summer, if you like—we’ll give them a tuneup, check the bindings and overall condition, and give them a thick, protective waxing).
